Due to a pending interruption in the statewide library van delivery contracts, inter-library loan requesting between libraries is temporarily suspended. Library users will still be able to request and place holds on items owned by their home library.



NEW FEATURE: Family Naturalist Backpacks

The Hollis Conservation Commission has generously sponsored two backpacks for check-out at the Hollis Center Public Library and Salmon Falls Library. Each backpack includes field guides to trees, bugs and slugs, reptiles and amphibians, birds, wildflowers, butterflies and pollinators, tracks, and scent; each pack also includes binoculars, magnifying glasses, and a nature guide! The backpacks are first-come, first-served and available for checkout!

Homeschooling Library Club

Our Library Club has begun meeting again.  This program was started at the request of a few of our patrons to give the kids who are home-schooled library literacy knowledge.  Some of the things we do include hands-on work to gain skills in using our library catalog, storytelling, learn how books are processed in our library and perhaps a craft to go along with the lesson.

We meet the first and third Mondays of each month from 1:00-2:00.  If you are interested in joining, please come into the library or email us at director@holliscenterpubliclibrary.org.  You can also text Miss Nancy at 207-712-1211.

Interactive Story Time with Nancy

Stories, a craft, and a snack! Mondays at 10:00 am at the Hollis Center Public Library.
